I have been away from Blogoland during almost four months. I closed my former blog, but did occasionally visit my blogfriends now and then. I feel that I am strong enough to explain my somewhat strange behaviour. I have been cought in the midst of an ugly disfunctional closeby family. I have known them for years, but have been totally unware of what was going on behind the closed doors. In November 2008 I was told by the mother in that family that her husband hitted her badly several times each week, and that this have been ongoing for more than 15 years!
I have tried to help that family! In December I became aware of that even the children was badly abused! There I draw the line for softly helping, them out of this awful way of living. The girl moved to my home, and the whole picture was put on the table by this girl ... to make this long and heart-breaking story short:
The girl is placed on a secret place in a good well-functional family, and the father has been detained in custody for five weeks, while I myself have been threaten and stalked by his brothers etcetera, I had to flee from my home. It has been a tough time, as You can imagine.
But, it is worth it, even if we can only save one child, at a time, it maybe scare some presumptive abusers to not walk that road! The father has now got his dome; Due to child abuse probation with society service 75 hours (instead of jail time 6 months) and he must attain a treatment-program for criminals called One-to-One. I hope this family will function together in the future, but they all need treatment!Sorry for my bad manners against all of You cyber-friends <3
April is the child abuse awareness month,
I hope it will make a change for our children!
